Benaras is a soundscape composition created from field recordings, edited, digitally processed and mixed/ augmented with sound samples using media production tools. While editing, a cinematic narrative has been maintained reconstructing an underwater journey, from one jetty to another, perceiving ambient sonic images floating on the way; and resurfacing with the help of visibility. Every such journey remains as intense but distant remembrance; this work, while reproducing, select ambient moments which are contextual but at the same time suggests a spectrum of aural possibilities in the given space. This soundscape work invites reconstructing an imaginary space through listening, viewing and mutually influencing memory and imagination.
